Write Your Story

We Electric Spec Editors are starting to work on our next fabulous issue.
I've been reading a lot of slush lately (thanks for sending it in!) and have a bit of advice: Write your story.
By this, I do not mean write your autobiography. (We are a speculative fiction ezine, so if your actual life has aliens/robots/elves/witches/ghosts/vampires/etc. you have my sympathies!)
I mean write the story only you can write. Take a look inside yourself to avoid cookie-cutter stories. What do you really care about? What do you fear most? What are your annoying habits? What is your philosophy of life? What do you really want to write about? Incorporate these concepts in your work to make it yours.

Novelists should also write the novel only they could write by looking inside themselves. I'm sorry to say some aspiring novelists I know are writing some cookie-cutter novels. :(

The submission deadline for the May 31, 2010 issue is April 15, 2010.
Keep sending us your stories!

I agree. It is hard to write something you cannot become passionate about.
